The MCLD version of "Teardrop". Recorded 100% vocally: 4 acappella/beatbox recordings laid on top of each other. No looping, no sampling, no edits - each line is recorded live, with no effects applied at all (apart from fixing the volume levels). Topic: beatboxing, trip-hop
MCLD's first album (featuring Shub on four of the tracks). A hotchpotch of grawky stuff, lots of it digitally-created. Some great tracks on this! I think so, anyway. That's why I released them. "Dedicated to the memory of a p" is often a popular one. "Space Creem" is an amazing scary rumbly drone thing - I just listened back to it and I love it. Topic: experimental

Billy Ruffian Records keeps various experimental bands including Bellerophon, MCLD, Missmyheartbeats and BAPS. Everything is (as you would hope) free for download and under CC licences. Hoorah! Latest: "sc140" (Various Artists) - electronic music created using just 140 characters per track. Amazing results...

A tribute to the millions (literally) of people who went on the anti-war marches in the run-up to Gulf War 2. (Recordings made during the march on April the 12th 2003.) This recording was featured on www.stopwar.org.uk Topics: anti-war, demonstration, collage, iraq, bush, blair
This album explores loads of loudish noises you can make with your voice... but it's leavened with some other stuff as well. Most of the tracks here are purely vocal - whether single-track, multi-track, or sampled. (Tracks 10, 13, 14, 15 are the exceptions.) Topics: voice, vocal, beatbox, experimental
Rhythmic ambient music created with Genetic Algorithms (a way of implementing evolution in a virtual environment). More info at http://www.mcld.co.uk/evolutionarysound/ These are live recordings, with no processing or post-production. No samples, no predefined patterns - everything you hear is created on-the-fly by evolutionary processes. Topics: experimental, evolution, genetic, generative, genetic algorithm, genetic programming
These files are audio examples accompanying a submitted research paper about musical timbral mapping techiques. Please read the README.txt which describes the audio examples. Topics: research, synthesis
Each of these pieces was created in SuperCollider using only 140 characters of code. Yet they're amazing, varied and complete pieces of music. What geniuses created them? See for yourself... Topics: supercollider, twitter, tweet, music
I got an email from someone asking if it was possible to take *any* MP3 and automatically turn it into chiptunes. Here's my attempt to automatically translate Bessie Smith into bleepy music, using a tiny bit of SuperCollider code. Topics: 8-bit, machine listening, automatic analysis, music analysis, supercollider
Generative output from a bit of code initiated by Julian Rohruber, and modified by others on the SuperCollider email list. The code I ran is shown at http://www.nabble.com/-cadavre-exquis--swee-tf4664300.html#a13683675 Topics: generative, supercollider
My piece "8 bit larynx" being performed at the NetVoTech concert (which was all about the musical use of voice+technology). In this piece I use my voice directly to control an emulated ZX Spectrum 128 sound chip. For technical details of the "timbral remapping" process I use in this piece, please see my research paper at http://tinyurl.com/2rf9ue (there's also a video lecture: http://tinyurl.com/3buzq9 ).
